The Progression Courses are designed for those of you who have completed the AFF course and who now want to be able to jump with your friends. The course is tailor-made for skydivers with less than 50 jumps (although not limited to) with one principle goal of coaching your FS progression resulting in you gaining your FS1* (ability to jump safely in a FS 4way). A lot of instructors are too busy to be able to offer the mandatory BPA B-Licence and USPA A-Licence briefs; spotting, responsibilities of a jumpmaster, introduction to the operations manual, flight-line checking, basic packing, inspection and fault finding of a a ram air parachute and canopy handling theory. If you have experienced this problem on your home DZ, this course is for you..!
* If you already have your FS1 but need all the other briefings/thoery lessons, the value of money for the FS1 course can be converted to 11x FF 1-on-1 coached jumps.
We have Progression & FS combined Courses planned specifically chosen over a weekend so that you take as few days off work as possible, to make a 7 day trip. Look for flights to and from Seville. Ideally an evening arrival flight and departure flight.

Jo Whiting (May 2012): "Now that's what I call progression... What an amazing, experience, I haven't stopped smiling yet. With 240 jumps already under my belt finding the time and weather to get the necessary briefs and assessments done in the UK was proving tricky. Skydive Spain's B license progression course seemed like the answer, and I can not thank the instructors and staff enough. Nothing was too much trouble. Right from the initial stages of booking the course, through to goodbyes at the end of the week, everyone, without exception, was friendly, attentive and professional. The combination of first class instructors, and great facilities and friendly staff made for very easy learning. JM1 and CH2 to packing, rig inspections, and spotting, the briefs were well planned and informative. The added bonus of the most amazing FF instructor was the icing on the cake for me. Anyone having done their AFF looking for more knowledge, or working towards their B license, this is the course, and the DZ for you. 10/10 Skydive Spain (the smile factory) keep up the good work. I'll certainly be back."
Chris Stevens (March 2011): "Skydive Spain offered me the perfect launchpad as a new skydiver; introductions into wind and drift assessment, the role of the jumpmaster, rig inspection and canopy packing, were a few of the fundamental lessons I received from the highly knowledgeable and patient instructors.
Off the dropzone the staff were prompt with pick-ups and drop-offs. The accommodation clean, comfortable and very welcoming after big days jumping in the sun!
Safe and repeatable progression through each skydive helped give me an immense sense of satisfaction with every improving jump. I was suprised by how much could be achieved in the time.
I have already booked a further course to progress with FS skills - I can't recommend it enough!
A massive thanks to everyone at this awesome dropzone!"
